Charlotte Tilbury Copper Sunrise & Sunset Rose Cream Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches

Copper Sunrise

Charlotte Tilbury Copper Sunrise Eyes to Mesmerise Long-Lasting Cream Eyeshadow ($32.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a slightly muted, medium-dark copper with moderate, warm undertones (more a mix of orange and bronze) paired with a smooth, metallic sheen. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer, but the consistency was more like a fluid gel with a lot of glide, so it was easily to diffuse as more of a wash of color and pearl if desired.

It’s critical to apply a thinner layer and let it set before building up (if necessary, depending on one’s application and all that) or else I find the formula is prone to getting into deeper lines as it sets as it has a longer dry down time. I often go back and diffuse the product out of the deeper fine line(s) to smooth it back out, and then it wears well from there (a good eight and a half hours before creasing noticeably again).

Formula Overview

$32.00/0.24 oz. – $133.33 Per Ounce

It’s supposed to be long-wearing, with a “glide-on” consistency with “soft-focus illuminating pigments” that will “smooth over lines and imperfections.” They tend to have semi-opaque to opaque color coverage in a single, but they can be diffused for a sheerer wash of color if desired.

The texture has more of a gel-cream feel; noticeably emollient and full of glide but not as “wet” as one would expect. The formula has good adhesion and doesn’t turn patchy as blended, which can be an issue with wetter formulas. It has a longer dry down time, which I find makes the formula more prone to faint creasing during that initial application time period.

In the past, like when the formula was originally released, I had more creasing at application and throughout wear (though always “faint” than disastrous, which I recall being puzzled by!). I’ve found that with more recently-released shades that it is more limited to creasing initially but once I smooth and buff out the product, it seems to keep from further creasing over the next seven to eight hours.

I eventually get faint creasing–though never that bad: where I can see it’s there, but blinking, you probably wouldn’t know it–after eight hours or so of wear.

Sunset Rose

Charlotte Tilbury Sunset Rose Eyes to Mesmerise Long-Lasting Cream Eyeshadow ($32.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a darker, plummy-bonze with warmer undertones and a pearly sheen. It had a warmer, reddish-copper base that had more brown tones through it, which gave it more of a muted look, but there was fainter, almost plum/pink pearl that made it appear less warm-toned when worn at higher opacity (see left swatch).

The cream eyeshadow had a smooth, more fluid consistency that was like a gel-cream, so it was lightweight with high slip but didn’t feel that wet to the touch as it was applied to my skin. I find it makes for a very easy-to-blend formula but with a longer dry-down period, so it can settle into fine lines/crease lines as it sets. I buff the product back out of these lines as necessary and then it seems to wear just fine for most of the day from there. It had opaque coverage applied in a single layer but could be diffused to a sheerer layer if desired. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours before creasing visibly.
